Design Matters Celebrates 100th Broadcast

Debbie Millman.jpgDesign Matters began in February of 2005 with an idea and a telephone line,” says Debbie Millman, the designer and author who you may know best as the engaging voice behind her must-listen radio show, Design Matters. “Mostly, I started out doing it for myself—I thought it would be a great way to ask my heroes everything I wanted to know about their lives and their thoughts and their careers without seeming stalker-y.” Having interviewed everyone from Abbott Miller to Ze Frank (the full list of guest stars is posted after the jump), Millman today wraps up her fifth season of Design Matters with the show’s landmark 100th broadcast. Tune in here at 3 p.m. EST to listen live as the radio hostess with the mostest interviews DeeDee Gordon, the youth culture expert behind the coolspotting research firm Look-Look. Congratulations, Debbie! We can’t wait to hear what you’ve got in store for season six.
